Orthopaedics for Medical Students
- internet access
This case is primarily intended for Deakin University medical students doing the musculoskeletal block in Year 3 at the South West Healthcare where I work and teach, although it is not directly supported or endorsed by Deakin University. Much of the teaching will be given as clinical and skills teaching, and the purpose of this part of the course is to provide students with the background to the important conditions that they need to know about but may not see during the rotation. The course is open for anybody interested, but will be of most interest to medical students in their clinical years undertaking a musculoskeletal/orthopaedic attachment.
Who this course is for:
- Clinical Years Medical Students
I am an orthopaedic surgeon and clinical educator with Deakin University Medical School. As a practical surgeon, I like to involve students in clinical situations, in clinics wards and operating theatre, so that they can build from and understanding of basic anatomy and physiology to a more complex understanding of musculoskeletal disease and its treatment. Understanding and seeing is much better than rote learning!
